? >> i think it is important to realize that self-defense does not begin at the moment of conflict. there's self-defense that the society enables through regulations, through laws that have passed, through norms it tries to establish. and one of the big things that is missing from this debate, we can go back and forth and have a conversation about whether armed security would stop anything from happening, didn't help in columbine, but the bigger question is, we as a society, what does this say when you want to put more guns in your place of education, in your place where you send your 5, 6, 7-year-old children? is that the message, the sort of society that we want to be? or do we want to take self-defense before the moment of conflict? do we want to look at legislation? do we want to put policies in place that allow us to defend ourselves before we get to a point where we say, i wish that teacher had it. by the time we get to that point, it was too late. >> hailey, were your surprised by the press conference? >> i have been optimistic for the official statement all week, and i have to say
citizen volunteers that would be summoned by their governors to the defense of the whole was preferable to standing federal military. a standing army had always been in the old world -- source of corruption of the authoritarianism of centralized power, dictators love standing armies because they got control of it they controlled the country. it was very much part of the early american experience that you did not want a standing army. one of the most important moments in george washington's life was when he resigned his commission and went back to mt. vernon because every -- almost every other commanding general in a struggle like this would have kept his army, declared himself regent or chancellor or dash king or president. and george iii is -- said to have remarked if washington actually resigns as commission and goes home would be the greatest manning to have lived and he was. so that -- the defense of the country then fell to smaller organizations. soing the second -- wording of the second amendment is, you know, the rights of -- militia well regulated militia being critical to deliv

and missile defense, wrong on china. i could go on, but i think that -- lou: we are about to run out of countries. >> the president got what he wanted. it will be more of the same. lou: to you agree? >> i think it is a pretty good choice. he won the election. he gets to choose. confirmed pretty readily? represents a sort of mainstream of american foreign policy, a little bit less for me, but not as far left as the first joist. lou: interesting, john mccain and others came out with really unreserved support for senator kerry. let's turn, if we may, to the failure in benghazi. and this report looks to me, i no there are varying views on this. and other whitewash, it seems. >>nd the misses the point. we know what happened before and during periods grew up some allies, cover-ups. to me with the important thing is, what happened afterwards, which is nothing. then never hunted down, retaliated, responded. look at what happened to the original september 11th. 1998, attacks on u.s. embassies in east africa and in 2000 attack on the u.s.s. cole, we did not respond. we beefed up security at th
their mortgage interest deduction, whatever that will look like. but what about spending cuts? is it defense cuts? is it health care cuts? where are those cuts going to come pro? >> we've already made some cuts in defense. obviously with sequestration there is a lot more. i think sequestration is not the way to go. we could do a better job prioritizing. they will come out of a lot of areas. agriculture, we put together a farm bill that cuts 23 to 35 billion. you put that in the mix. again we have to go through all aspects of government to figure out where we can save and at the same time we've got to reform entitlement programs to make sure they're is vent for the long term the those ideas have been put forward. we have to come together on a package and do it. adam: this is simple yes or no, senator before i let you go. are you here monday night talking to us about how we go over the cliff or do we get a resolution, yes or no? >> yes, i think there is chance we will be. the house is coming back. that's a good sign. let's get everybody here. let's get after it. adam: senator john hoeven, one of th

spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from lawmakers, some at lease on both sides that they would quickly, both houses, the house and senate pass legislation to rollback those tax hikes on at least some americans at the lower end, and that maybe they would end up keeping them for the higher end because once they are in much harder to remove those tax hikes. do you believe that that would happen? patti ann: yeah, look, i think a lot of this is high theater, this is just drama i think it's going to play out probably until december 31st, maybe it will be 11:00pm right before the stroke of midnight in the new year before these guys reach a deal, but i'm predicting they will maybe a deal i. talked to my congressional sources last night, they said the presiden the president in his overtures sounded much more conciliatory like he wanted to reach a deal. they are not
. the harshest effects of spending cuts could be modified in the first month or two of 2013. in fact, the defense department, the irs and other government agencies are planning no immediate changes because they're anticipating some kind of deal. that leaves the unemployed, extended unemployment insurance will expire immediately if we go over the cliff. a deal later in january could theoretically restore extended benefits, the immediate damage will have already been done. for many people, this is all an interesting charade. but for the unemployed it's the real deal. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. tonight's question, who will the public blame if we go over the fiscal cliff? text a for democrats, text b for republicans to 622329. i'll bring you the results later in the show. >>> joining me now is congressman elijah cummings of maryland. welcome to the show. >> it's good to be with you. >> what do you make of the latest posturing. the house will they reconvene before january? they have a lot of stuff to do, so clearly they can't make it back to d.c. to do the people's busine
more points of defense in a school than just one armed guard that would be very visible and if someone were maniacal enough to come and attack a school they'd probably take that guard out first and there are school districts around the country and one in texas where i've spoken with the superintendent northwest of dallas, and the whole state of utah permits concealed carry of teachers and it's worked out very well. these have not become targets because i think most of the criminal class understands that an armed victim is too dangerous to take on, if they can go some other way to do their crime. >> there are some assumptions there and that is, of course, the question of mental health. you're seeing those of this side like to commit a crime and they're aware of these limitations and these challenges and we just look at columbine as senator feinstein was saying yesterday in addressing mr. lapierre's comment and she was saying look at columbine, there were two armed guards there. that did not work. >> they fled, whereas if you are under attack and you have a gun then it's rather reasonabl
of his way to say, if you are wealthy and all you're not getting any tax cuts, and it was a defensive argument on a fundamental issue rather than pointing president obama had twice argue in public that raising taxes in an economic downturn would doom the economy. the president of the united states said that and iran on a proposal. lou: two things that seem peculiar. i would love for both of you to respond. i heard a lot of bonn, abou the tea party. the tea party did not exist in this election. it was a non fctor. why in the world would there be so much concern in the republican party about the tea party. why was there an idea that you're better off today than you were four years ago and pick 2008 as the year, he baseline, and it was a lousy year. in point of fact, just about everybody is. what o you make? very quickly. >> your immediate question, yes, we were better off than the depths of being in a whole. president clinton explained the argument that we were climbing t. by that time election day, the percentage of people is of the country going in their right correction,saw the econo
not taking that ability of lawful self-defense. you're restricted in few places to carry. a school is not one of them. this isn't anything new. we never had a problem. >> but the larger question then is more really about gun control. are more guns the answer or are fewer guns the answer? and the other thing that i want to point out is teachers, of course, are equipped to teach. they are trained to teach. not necessarily trained and equipped to fire guns. so my question is, should it really be the teacher's responsibility to learn how to shoot a gun when that's not the main goal of why they are there at the school. >> with all due respect, are teachers trained to jump in front of bullets and protect their kids too? when we talk about more guns, are more guns the answer? who do you think they call and why do they call the police when something like this happens because they know the police will show up with their guns. the only problem is the police show up a little too late. they have lots of guns and equipment and man power, but just a little too late. the first responders at sandy hook and i
his nomination for the next secretary of defense, but some lawmakers voice their skepticism today about senator chuck hagel for the position a republican senator says he doubts he will get the votes and says hagel's past position on irrarn is out of touch with the president's policies. >>> a concert promoter is suing rapper rapper nas for $10 million, claim avenues no-show for a new year's concert in africa heavily promoted. >>> tim tebow to jacksonville? an espn reporter says tebow is signing with the jaguars this offseason is a virtual certainty. the jets reportedly are likely to honor tebow's request to be released, which will make him an unrestricted free agent. >>> a man who didn't make it as a pop star has found the kind of success that no amount of fame can match. we will have his story. we're at walmart with the simmons family. how much is your current phone bill? four sixteen seventy six a month! okay, come with me -- we're gonna save you money. with straight talk at walmart, you get unlimited talk, text and data for only $45 a month per phone. would we get the same cover
the fiscal cliff some democrats because they would finally get the defense cuts that they have been clamoring for and it would actually serve their purposes. i dismiss that. >> to be fair, we have even had some republicans who have said that that they want. members of the tea party don't want to have anything to do with -- they want us to go into default. they want us to face these problems. howard dean on the democratic side saying, look, if we don't do it, we have got this other plan and he talks about the fiscal cliff to what alisyn was just saying. listen. >> as you know, i believe the country would be better off if would get another revenueiff. to be serious about balancing the budget and get defense cuts which the congress will never vote for otherwise. we will get some human services cuts which i don't like but we are in a deep hole and everybody is going to have to put somethinged in something. the truth the belief that millionaires or people who make more than $250,000, you tax them more that's going to solve the deficit problem that's just not so. i think it would be better for the
quicker from the ceos and the market holders, saying what are you doing? the defense contractors, medicare doctors if wie go off the fiscal cliff, get a 25% cut. so how does all the political pressure from the constituents and powerful players come from the economic pain, does the political pressure come quick enough before we get into the real economic pain? or does it go the other way? we get into the economic pain, or the economic pressure doesn't come in the right way or causes economic grid? the thing that worries me, if we go a month without the resolution we begin to run into a debt ceiling. and if we're going into a fiscal cliff ceiling, the contraction of government policy, and then on top of that we have a debt ceiling crisis, we're going to leash an economic hell that will be like lehman in 2008. >> my reaction, the sense of this, it is why i'm relaxed going off the curb because i never believed we would hit the month and month and a half. and now if i'm wrong, you and i are both staying up nights. but my sense is that all capitol hill needs is being off the cliff for a day or t
. we can deal with cuts to defense and domestic programs later. but let's take care of the middle and working class right now. give them assurance right now. joining me is congressman chief ellison. he's co-chair of the progressive caucus and melissa harris perry, host of the melissa harris perry show here on msnbc. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thank you, al. >> congressman, let me go to you first, this deal comes down to taxing the rich. how can they not realize this is what the country wants? >> i don't think that the republican leadership cares what the country wants. i think they care about what their biggest donors want and their big donors want to reorganize america so that -- because they believe that the rich don't have enough money and the poor have too much. so what we're hearing here is an expression of an et you logical idea that we need american society to be cost competitive with places like china. that means giving rich people even more money. and we're not going to standby. >> as i was listening to the president's statement, when he said that he appeal
and self-defense classes during holiday break. here is alex cabraro. >> reporter: steven pratt has never had a gun permit, lately he's wanted one. >> with the recent tragedy in connecticut, i realized it's time for me to act on that. >> reporter: pratt is a third grade teacher. his students are about the same age as those who died in connecticut. >> i just worried a little bit, what would i do as a teacher? how would i protect myself if fired upon? >> reporter: is not the only one asking those questions. hundreds of teachers, administrators, janitors, anyone involved in a school came to the maverick center in west valley. this class called the mass violence response training class was designed to teach them to fight back. >> i think it's important to have protection. >> reporter: the class wasn't just about guns and protecting yourself with a gun. but guns were a big part of it. >> people are tired of being victims. >> reporter: clark is a well-known shooting instructor in utah. he helped teach the class providing the basic fore iics fo do and how do it. >> we're not going to get the gun
to this deal because we're not dealing with sequestration, we're not dealing defense cuts, we're not dealing with raising the debt ceiling until next year. i really think that's probably the sticking point at this time. >> maria, are democrats going to do enough for spending cuts, or are they going kind of whittle through that? >> we'll see what the senate is able to come up with. there doesn't seem to be enough time, though, for the kind of spending cuts that we really need to focus on for the long term to be negotiated in the next 72 hours because as you noted those are very difficult positions for democrats. it doesn't mean that democrats don't think that there should be spending cuts. the president is the first one to say that spending cuts are something that he has put on the table and that we need to negotiate and whatever long-term deal gets done. but right now, washington has really pushed us to the brink. and i think what everybody agrees on, i think ron would agree with me, is that no one wants to get blamed for taxes going up on 98% of the american people. and so that i think is w
're not armed well enough, perhaps and that they do need to have proper defense. so for instance, the department of education study shows that public schools around the country, 28% have a firearm, and 22% a chemical spray and 17% have a stun gun on firepower alone when you look at these tragedy, unfortunately, even when you do have a police and security at those locations they're severely, severely overmatched when it comes to firepower. >> well, i think it shows in columbine, just for example, even there that having armed police officers at the scene at the school didn't stop that attack from happening. look, i have the utmost respect for men and women in uniform who every day put their lives on the line to protect all of us and i'm grateful for their service, but with security and police having them in the schools isn't the primary answer for protecting our children and it's about preventing people from getting these assault weapons in the first place and we can do that most effectively by passing assault weapons ban and eliminating these extended gun clips as being legally sold in the countr
think that is the fine type of leadership -- yes, in this area of the proper defense of our consulates overseas, the proper thing was done. in other areas, not for political purposes, but for making sure we get the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird h
. after they won the supreme court case identifying a right to own a gun in your home for self-defense, the question i think for them was well, what do we do now. do you fold up a $240 million a year organization? does wayne lapierre give up his $1.4 million a year salary? no. they have methodically gone from state legislature to state legislature chipping away at modest restrictions that most nra members support. so he has a huge problem, i think, based on that bizarre press conference, with the membership of the nra which is quite reasonable. >> ari, i want to get your reaction to the press conference the other day but as an attorney, to sort of talk about that turn because it is sort of a unique kind of feature of the idea of the constitution that you have this unique, you know, the individual right to bear arms. because historically, there's been lots of gun legislation. i was reading about sort of even the battle at the ok corral and these other fights in the wyatt earp days when you had to check your gun in at the sheriff's office. that was perfectly reasonable and it was sort of
ads put romney on defense for months. the president also got a lip fr lift from the supreme court. romney vowed to strike it down himself. >> i'm not one that's going to get rid of obama care. >> reporter: at number seven, gas. >> governor romney, do you feel that your gas has overshadowed your foreign trips? >> reporter: or in romney's case, his entire foreign trip where a campaign aide lashed out at reporters. a gaffe that went global. and then at number sick, the conventions were remembered less for the nominees and their running plates and more for -- >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that. can't do that to himself. >> reporter: the warmup acts that stole the show. >> we believe that we're all in this together is a far better philosophy than you're on your own. >> reporter: number five, the september 11 attack in benghazi injected foreign policy into the race. >> justice will be done. >> reporter: a week later, the campaign shifted again to the hidden cram ra video of romney's comments on the 47% and an instant obama attack ad. number four, among th
a restraining order against her parents. let's talk about this bizarre case with the one and only defense attorney joey jackson with us now. good morning to you. >> good morning, christi. happy holidays to you. >> happy holidays to you as well. thank you for being here. so first of all, these were the girl's parents. of course they want to make sure that she's okay, but where's that line? you know, legally, between being a concerned parent and now, i mean, they are truly dubbed legally stalkers. >> they are indeed. listen, parents need to be concerned, and they should be concerned, but the facts here are ditch, and so when you look at parenting, yes, we all as parents want the best for our children, but it's another thing to become obsessive and here the lines certainly were crossed according to the jump and, christi according to the facts. when you start installing monitoring devices, some parents want to check and see what children are doing. traveling from kansas to ohio where your daughter is in school unannounced not saying anything and then go to her peers, in addition to administra

a missile defense program, a rudimentary program, but it's been in place, put it in place several years ago, and it's designed specifically to handle this. actually we're ahead on that. but they've been relentless bad boys. no matter how difficult their domestic situation is, they've always seemed to find the resources to military power and threatening neighbors and friends and trying to shift technology abroad. it's a rogue regime. it's difficult to deal with. and it adds a complicating factor into the dynamic equation in asia between china and japan and the south china sea and the united states. >> let's switch gears now and talk about senator kerry, who will likely be secretary of state coming up. and with regard to the israeli/palestinian situation, do you think he might have an approach that could come and get something palpable done over there? >> i think that's really a presidential call. when you're dealing with israeli/palestinian issue, it's the president of the united states who's going to make that call. and really in all foreign policy it is the president's prerogative. i think
